Comment Re:What's the point of Western Union? (Score 3, Interesting) 110

I've discovered that quite a few folks in the US think that an offer to pay them via bank transfer is a sure indicator that I'm trying to scam them, or seeking to hack into their bank account.

Not to mention all the places in the US that *require* payment via cheque or other paper instrument. WTF? Is it still, like, 1975 there? Seriously--I've not written a cheque in close to 20 years, but on a recent visit there, I was obliged to buy some money orders because that was the only alternative they'd accept other than me coming in personally with a big wad of cash!

Trump's speeches were warm and inclusive, saying essentially "we're in this together, we can win, we can do better".

LOLWHUT?? Only if you're a WASP who wants to ignore/shut out anyone who isn't.

(Disclaimer: I certainly qualify as a WASP. But I'm not so blind as to fail to recognise that a very large proportion of the rest of the world isn't.)

I don't think anyone on the left has a clue how ineffective their campaign of crying, whining, and insulting is.

I think a very large proportion of Americans have been conditioned to regard any facts that they don't care for as "lies" and/or "insults".
